Ricola – Share a Pearl of Goodness

I would like to introduce you guys a PEARL of Goodness that will never go wrong!

IMG_2193

Ricola Fresh Pearls are now more chewy and more refreshing! From the repackaging of Ricola Fresh Pearls, definitely it looks much more chic and trendy, and with the new flavour of “Glacier Mint” you can now enjoy a burst of refreshing chewy mint at any moment! Ricola Fresh Pearls – Glacier Mint actually helps me freshen up much more on days i have to stay awake for a meeting especially when that ZZZZ monster kick in after lunch! The minty and chewy pearls is really easy to chew on, and it doesn’t need any much effort as well, so it is definitely one of my top keeper NEEDS in my little bag! Anyway is so small and light, I can even squeeze into my lunch pouch! I personally LOVE how the new chewy experience though when consuming Ricola Fresh Pearls.

Some interesting face though!
The 85+ year old brands always never fails to give the goodness of nature, the power of Swiss herbs and also a balance taste and benefits to the consumer. And what’s more amazing, all Ricola products are 100% manufactured in Switzerland and have no artificial colouring and flavouring to it! Hence it is more benefits to you than just consuming like a candy, since they uses naturally grown herbs in the Swiss mountains.

[Media Tasting] – 螃蟹之家 House of Seafood, “High” Seafood Tower

SNG_0337

When I see seafood I alway cant resist it. And not to mention having to able to have our #slaysquadsix lunar new year reunion lunch at House of Seafood is more than amazing! I am always a fan of their black pepper crab, as they always been NO1 in the ranking! The history of this restaurant goes all the way back, that every night they always sold out their black pepper crab.

SNG_0331

My dad especially love it and always crave for it too on and off. But this time instead of their popular black pepper crab, we going to try something new!

IMG_7555

Exciting huh?

It is non other than their ‘High’ Seafood Tower 鲜堡塔 that we going to try! It is told to me that it is a popular Korea’s trending dish, where by they steam it up with all the seafood all in one! (Save so much time actually) And also it is the 1st and original seafood tower with collagen soup in Singapore.

SNG_0327

The soup based is non other than a lovely seafood collagen soup based ! (OMG, so good for skin!). Each layer consists of different types of seafood that will give even more essence to the collagen soup based.

SNG_0333

The different types of seafood are:

SNG_0346Squid!

SNG_0350

SNG_0352Scallops

SNG_0342Live Mussels

SNG_0344Prawns

SNG_0349

SNG_0345Live Clams

SNG_0347Live Crabs

And also live bamboo clams that I didn’t have time to capture a time of it! (Cause someone finish it so fast! Tsk!!) As it is all live and fresh, it only take less than 10 minutes of steaming it up and we can all have a feast! It is so easy and simple. To make it more flavourful, House of Seafood actually have their own sauces always ready!

SNG_0318

SNG_0319

With the different sauces, the boss told us that we can actually mix and match to create more than 50 kinds of flavours to it. I am really impressed, but of course as someone who love spiciness, I only took those chilli paste to whack it all out. HEHEHE.

To be honest, the one I really love the most was the end taste to the “High” Seafood Tower! Which is non other than the Seafood Collagen Soup Based that is now all filled up with all the live seafood essence it in! Hmmmmmmm, you really just cant have only one bowl of soup, cause is never enough! My boyfriend and I both drank two bowls of it and even put in the clams for more flavours.

SNG_0356

SNG_0355

YES! It always happen to me! I dont just want a plain bowl of porridge or even to dip myself in tons of dimsum and their oil! Always looking for healthy ranges of variety and most importantly fresh and warm like you just cooked it!

And YES again, I found it! Steam Box! It uses one of the most iconic and traditional chinese cooking, that help ensure all the natural flavors and nutrients are all well kept in the food and that is by steaming! It is a steam hot pot thats uses a high speed steaming that shorten your fuss in waiting for the food to be cooked!

With all that steaming of the food there is actually some hidden treasure underneath it! With all the essence and juices of the fresh food you steam previously it is actually all collected below that finish off your meal with a smile! And that is of course the congee! How would you miss out congee when it comes to comfort food. The juices actually enhances the taste of the congee so well, that even after feeling bloated with all the steamed food, you will never say no to those hot steamy congee! (HAHA)

I personally love how easy it is to steam the food, and how awesome that most of the nutrients is kept cause of the cooking technique. And also not forgetting those aromatic congee at the end of the meal.

[Food Tasting] – Frunatic – You are what you eat.

“You are what you eat.” Most of us would have heard of this before, but somehow, we just can’t stop ourselves from turning our bodies into a ball of sugar or salt. I am easily tempted by sweet treats and pretty pastries that I just can’t keep my hands off, or worst, they usually end up in my mouth. (Damn)

Some of us would go on diets, cleanses or work extra hard for our workouts to make up for our earlier sins. Sounds familiar? How long does it usually last? Maybe a week or a month? After that, the cycle repeats itself and the numbers get from good to bad every health checkup.

Oh what can we do? We eat to live but eating kills us instead? Well, instead of a 180 degree change in our lifestyles, why not try something that can last for the long haul. All it takes is a little step in the right direction!

Processed with VSCO with a7 preset
I made a trip to Frunatic and to understand more about the Frunatic way of doing that!
